Things to Do Before A Tennis Match

Tennis classes will teach you that pregame rituals are popular among athletes’ at all different levels. Some treat it as superstition and refuse to do anything other than the ritual that they have developed for themselves. When I was in high school I played with one of the best tennis players in the country. He went on to play in college and now is a professional tennis player, as good as he was at tennis he gives all the credit to his pregame ritual. He would wake up in the morning and have two eggs and five strips of bacon. He would then head to the gym to get in an upper body workout, nothing else. For lunch, he would have two turkey sandwiches with Gatorade and orange and a bag of chips. He would also keep a gallon of water with him at all times during the day, drinking it to prepare for the game. For dinner, he would have penne pasta with red sauce, salad, and a banana. He would listen to the same five songs on rotation and get his ankles and wrists tapped the exact same way. Then when he hit the court he was ready to perform. He still does this ritual to this day, it might sound crazy but this is a well-curated routine that gets him ready to perform at his best. We are going to look into the importance of a pre-game ritual before tennis matches.

 

Eat Right 

 

You might have seen all the food that the player was eating before the games and thought it was a bit ridiculous. But after playing the sport of tennis for a decade, this athlete had found the perfect combination to make sure their body was ready to go. You have to fuel properly in order to perform at anything in life. The saying “you are what you eat” is true and you can see it during sporting events. Players who eat better and have a full meal have more energy when it is time to play. They are ready to lay their bodies on the line to get the victory. Players who do not eat right might start the game off with high energy. But when the clock starts ticking and the game is dwindling down their bodies start to deteriorate. In sports, it is not about how you start but how you finish. You can have a fantastic start but still, end up losing in the long run. 

 

Prepare Mentally

 

Tennis is a sport that is as tough on you physically as it is mentally. Tennis classes will always preach the importance of being in the right mindset before you start a match. If you walk in thinking that you are going to lose, chances are you are going to lose. You need to hype yourself up, focus on the good that can happen and then execute. A great way to fixate on the good is to study your opponent. In tennis classes, they will teach you the importance of being able to break down your opponent. All of the greats from Serena Williams to Roger Federer study their opponents intensely. They know what their weaknesses are so that they can expose them during the match. This way you are able to use your strengths to their best ability while also using your opponents' weaknesses against them. When you talk to the true greats they always mention how the game slows down for them. This might be surprising since the ball is coming in with intense velocity and speed. But this is because they have practiced and done their homework on their opponent. The end result is usually a win for the tennis player who prepared mentally.
